Hi, I hope this finds you in good health and vitality.
In today’s article, Health Bunker will address Antibiotics. Like vaccines, they are lauded as the saviour to humankind. But have you ever wondered what Antibiotics actually are? Or how do they really work? What is Antibiotic Resistance?
In the case of people with Lyme Disease antibiotics are the only treatment on offer from the NHS. But what happens when they don’t work?
Antibiotic Treatment for Lyme Disease; According to the NHS Website;
As we have mentioned in previous articles, if you think you may be bitten by an infected tick or have symptoms of Lyme Disease, like erythema migrans (red bullseye rash) which spreads around the tick bite area, you need to have a blood test.
Public Health England and in the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, warn that wooded areas may contain these infected ticks.
The NHS offers a 2 tier Lyme disease test, but are at best they’re 50% accurate. They have decided not to validate any other test. I have been contacted on Health Bunker by a number of sufferers who tested negative using the NHS test, but positive using another. Their doctor would not even recognise their new results.
‘A few people who are diagnosed and treated for Lyme disease continue to have symptoms, like tiredness, aches and loss of energy, that can last for years. These symptoms are often compared to fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. It’s not clear why this happens to some people and not others. This means there’s also no agreed treatment. Speak to your doctor if your symptoms come back after treatment with antibiotics or they do not start to improve’.
